what could it be?

I have a 2000 grand marquis LS w/ 72000 miles.....just recently noticed that my front passenger side is starting to lean. I check all tire pressure i even jacked the car up disconnected both shocks from the lower end then let the car back down to see if it would be a shock. not sure if that is 100% way of checking shocks but couple people said if u do that and let the car back down it would even out....but low and behold it was still leaning with both shocks disconnect from the bottom....now for the other problem tranny shifts funny from 3rd to 4th at about 40 mph was told a sensor?

n e info would be greatly appreciated....thanx in advanced

I would suggest doing a search at Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, Marauder, and Towncar. They've got a lot of guys over there with knowledge about the newer stuff, and can undoubtedly help you.

Re: what could it be?

do you have air suspension, how much is it leaning, car ever in an accident, do you have a full size spare?

shocks do not change ride height, only springs.

Amazing that this is the same thing I notice my tranny doing on the same car.
My front suspension is ok. Thank God!
